allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isap. and i would rephrase the pentagon for the process underway with regards to general allen. >> reporter: now carney downplayed questions on whether this whole situation illuminates something about the culture of military leadership. he said these are two events seeming to say they are two isolated instances, but zoraida, he did say that the president was surprised, i guess that's not particularly surprising, to learn about general petraeus. and that's really as far as carney would go, saying he was very surprised and that was his initial reaction to learn of this situation when he first learned on wednesday. >> i know he called it an unwelcomed development as well. this afternoon the president will hold his first press conference in his second term, what do you expect him to focus on? >> reporter: what isn't he going to be asked about, that's the thing. he has not had a real press conference, i think you can say, a rather extensive press conference in months. he did one in the spring. a more extensive press conference.
it was important to refer the matter to the pentagon's inpeck tore general. the senior defense official tells nbc news that panetta didn't make this decision lightly. secretary clinton acknowledged she has talked to u.s. partners about the allen case but says it won't harm the war effort. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who has been an important part of the nato isap mission in afghanistan. there's been a lot of conversation, as you might expect, bob, but no concern whatsoever being expressed to us because the mission has been set forth. it is being carried out. >> the head of nato also told reporters today in brussels that he has full confidence in general allen. we are also learning more about the 20,000 to 30,000 documents that include some e-mails between general allen and the tampa socialite jill kelley which the pentagon calls potentially inappropriate communications. the fbi has characterized some of the e-mails as, quote, flirtatious. the general strongly denies any misconduct and the fbi has not found any wrongdoing. we're also learning more about kelley herself
pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski, petraeus himself wanted to do this and called his old colleagues at the cia and said, listen, i know they want to hear from me, i want to testify so they want to hear from him, he wants to testify so it's going to happen. it should be clarified here though, thomas, it won't be an open session. it'll be a closed session because obviously they'll be discussing classified information. >> pete, the other interesting thing we're just learning this new information about the e-mails between jill kelley and general allen and one source describing to nbc news that they were friendly, not so much of a sexual nature. we're talking about thousands of e-mails here but what more can you tell us? >> i don't think we know exactly how many e-mails there are because we've heard a wide range of numbers. it was apparently at least several hundred. what the upper end of that is i think we don't know. but, you know, people close to general allen are saying that he was just the kind of guy who would say, you know, if somebody gave him a compliment, thanks, sweetie, thank
to someone at the pentagon for them to look into. when jill kelley went to the fbi, her agent friend in june, to complain about all these e-mails she had both the ones sent to her, we know by paula broadwell as well as whatever e-mails sent to general allen and forwarded to her. she had that -- all those together. i think, andrea, it's fair to say in terms of investigations now, it's all but over for the fbi except for one last question and that is, was there some sort of a classified document violation on the part of paula broadwell? did she have access to things she shouldn't have or more likely was she improperly storing them on her personal computer and house. that's what the search on monday night was about. the people i've talked to say it doesn't appear to be anything major. i suppose the prosecutors in tampa could go either way on whether they want to pursue charges here. doesn't seem at this point like she had any truly significant danger to national security kind of documents sitting around her house. >> now, michael is ssy cover, w we know from our colleague jim at the pentagon, h
of "escape fire." >> to the pentagon acknowledged that a fire on an unmanned u.s. surveillance drawn in international airspace. it will return to base on harmed -- unharmed. they discussed the incident at today's briefing. >> good afternoon. this weekend, the secretary will be traveling to the asia pacific, the fourth trip, the third since june. further advance the strategy for rebalancing in the asia-pacific. the first stop will be australia where he will be joined by secretary clinton and others for the annual u.s.-australia ministerial. this is his first trip as secretary of defense to austria and will allow him to express gratitude for their contribution to our efforts in afghanistan. it also provides an opportunity to review the alliance is progress. and to discuss the next steps in this important operation. then he will travel to thailand, the first visit to thailand since 2008. it is an important alliance that will serve our country as well for 60 years and the government's are interested in establishing a strategic vision for this alliance. the final stop will be cambodia. th
pentagon correspondent barbara starr. she's getting new information on paula broadwell. what are you learning, barbara? >> wolf, some really stunning new information. cnn has learned from two u.s. officials that paula broadwell's security clearance has been suspended. she is a serving reservist, if you will, with the u.s. army, a military intelligence analyst. as such, she would at least have a secret level security clearance. we are now told that security clearance suspended pending the outcome of several investigations. we went to the army to ask them for an official response. they will not say anything except the following. and let me read it to you. "appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken." the statement goes onto say "the army has been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities in this matter. and those actions are ongoing." wolf, you will recall a couple of days ago the fbi went to broadwell's home. we all saw the video of fbi agents taking away boxes of material, computers. the discussion centering around what kind of c
, and oracle records and so far it just has been from the pentagon. i hate to see this. they have worked so hard. but there is the ability to break it as well. >> it always makes sense to me. thank you for coming on tonight. gerri: millions of people now playing video games on their smartphones. some find it a great way to pass the time. for every time you take the phone out of your pocket, the higher the risk of it is that it will be lost or stolen. it all depends on where you live. on tonight's top five, the cities with the highest rate of smartphones that. at number five, newark, new jersey. number four is long beach california an oakland california is next. and number two is seattle. a lot of smart forms there. and the number one hotspot for smartphone that is philadelphia. that is a shocker. across the country about 30 million phones stolen, lost or stolen and the most likely place is a fast food restaurant or grocery store. coming up next, the market has taken quite a hit over the last few days. you will have gerri: here is something that you may be wondering about. the dow has fallen
we are learning more about skess about him and the pentagon investigation and alleged behavior does the president have faith that general allen can continue to lead the war in afghanistan. he's under investigation by the pentagon. >> can i tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. as well as the job he has done in afghanistan. at the request of the secretary of defense, the president has put on hold general allen's notion as supreme allied commander europe, pending the investigation of his conduct by the department of defense i.d. the president remains focused on fully supporting our extraordinary troops and coalition partners in afghanistan who general allen continues to lead as he has done so ably for over a year. meanwhile, the president has nominated general dunford to be the next commander and reiterates his belief that the senate should act swiftly to confirm him, his hearings are this week. >> is it ack to a -- accurate to say the president has full faith in general allen? >> he believes he's doing and done an excellent jo
and that's got to be balanced. it has to include revenues and squeezing the pentagon a bit and obviously, maybing some entitlement reforms. if the leap adership an preside can negotiate that, that's great, but the worst option would be if they failed to negotiate and i'm a real skeptic, then the worst thing we could do is change the date from january 1 to say august or september. that would send a terrible signal to the markets. congress once again dodging its responsibilities and our responsibilities to come up with something that's durable and sustainable. if january 1 comes then, it's not so much a cliff as it is a slope. we would be under enormous pressure to come up with that balanced deal, so my view is much better for us to get a good, durable deal that is achieved before and after january 1. >> so, congressman, you know, i never want to hear the term fiscal which i have again. i mean, the election sent a mandate. we want something done. >> you're right about that and if the leadership and the president are able to negotiate and we get it done, that would be the best thing. but yo
win. senior officials here at the pentagon have decided it will take new military leadership to do it. defense secretary robert gates mcmckiernan in afghanistan last week to break the bad news, but waited until today to announce it. >> i asked for the resignation of general david mckiernan. >> gates and obama relieving him of command. when they did that and relieved him of command as the lead american commander of the war in afghanistan, that was the first time since general truman fired douglas mcarthur during the korean war that a president relieved a four-star commanding general in the middle of the war he was leading. when president obama did that it was the first time in 58 years anything like that happened in this country, and then he did it again. after he fired the man who was running the war when he took office, the replacement general that president obama sent to lead the war thereafter was this guy, general stanley mcchrystal. there was a immediate contracult around him as around david petraeus. a year after general mcchrisle tal took command, he, too, was fired by presiden
general. america's top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. the pentagon is looking at moshe 20,000 documents and e- mails between allen and kelly which some labeled inappropriate and flirtatious. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. >> general allen's nomination could be the next leader of u.s. forces european command and nato's supreme allied commander is in doubt. >> his nomination is on hold as a prudent measure until we determine the facts. >> reporter: the white house still trusts general allen. general joseph dunford will replace general allen in afghanistan as soon as he is confirmed. the president holds a news conference this afternoon at 1:0 eastern time. he is expected to face some hard questions. and this is his first news conference of his second term. first one he held in 8 months. doesn't want to face this one. those are the tough questions about what when he got wind of this scandal and what's next fortunate security team. >> is there a replacement? >> we don't have confirmation. this is a tough time had the white house had with uncertainly events on afgha
. as painful as it may be, as difficult as it may be, the pentagon has to step up. they have to find ways to save money, too. and i think a lot of those on the left feel that we've gone too deep into education and other programs. let's make sure this is balanced from this point forward. >> senator, before we let you go, switching topics a bit, i assume that much of today's press conference or a lot of it, too much of it, will be preoccupied with the two co-stars of "you've got mail," general petraeus and paula broadwell, but it leads to a larger issue, many people think, and that is the repeated deployments of the american military to afghanistan following on iraq and the impact it has on service families left behind and the war itself, the lingering 12-year war. what's your view on all of this? >> mike, you put your finger on it. we ought to talk about the real cost of war. it is not just in dollar terms. it certainly includes the terrible loss of life, over 5,000 americans in iraq and afghanistan. it means those who came back with injuries and the impact on individuals and families afte
about outstanding military leaders and overall questions about the fbi. >> the pentagon inspector general is now investigating now general john allen. top american commander in afghanistan. fbi has uncover between 20,000 and 30,000 documents. mostly e-mails sent between allen and this woman, jill kelley. a senior defense official tells msnbc that the e-mails were inappropriate. kelley was the target of paula broad we'll's e-mails. the associated press that broadwell thought of kelley as a romantic rival for petraeus affection. he was supposed to start the process this week to be the next commander of american forces in europe and supreme allied commander of nato, allen will remain commander in afghanistan. . >>> i don't even know where to begin. how does this happen? >> well, i don't know it happens. particularly in the digital age. the idea that people think that if you have thousands of e-mails that they're not going to be picked up and found out it's sort of amazing. what's most disturbing, this is a terrible time from a foreign policy standpoint to have petraeus out. scandals
for the confirmation to be expedited. "the pentagon was still reviewing the e-mail and declined to comment on the relationship." host: also next to that story is a story from "the boston globe." "kerry considered as possible defense chief." "the president is considering asking john kerry to join the national security team." host: so, that is the latest on that. also this morning, "nancy pelosi considers leaving post as house democratic leader."
